ADC Women’s Empowerment Forum

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is proud of our Women’s Empowerment Forum (WEF), aimed at addressing challenges surrounding gender equity. This is consistent with ADC’s mandate as an inclusive, secular, non-partisan civil rights organization. The WEF will promote issues such as women leadership roles and gender equity. The WEF will highlight the progress of women’s rights in addition to raising awareness in areas such as STEM, gender wage-gap, education access, and women’s healthcare and reproductive rights.

Mission Statement:

  • To raise awareness on issues of gender equity and women’s empowerment in the Arab American community, as well as forming a networking platform to develop more career opportunities for young Arab American women.
  • To give Arab American women the opportunity and the space to communicate their issues and find solutions in the areas of development, education, and social justice.
